Four militants were killed in an encounter on Monday at a CRPF camp in Sambal, Bandipora district of Jammu and Kashmir. “Terrorists tried storming camp around 3:30 am to execute a fidayeen attack. Thwarted, 4 terrorists gunned down,” Yogesh Kumar, Sub Inspector CRPF told news agencies.

The heavily armed militants tried to enter the camp of 45 Battalion CRPF at Sumbal in Bandipora by opening fire at the sentry post, a police official said.  The forces retaliated and killed four terrorists. “Four militants were killed in the retaliatory firing and the suicide attack was foiled,” he added.

Four AK rifles, one UBGL (Underbarrel Grenade Launcher) and some ammunition were recovered from the slain militants, the police official said.

Confirming the incident, J&K DGP Shesh Paul Vaid tweeted, “45 Bn @crpfindia/@JmuKmrPolice killed 4 terrorists at Sumbal #Bandipore who were attempting suicidal attack on CRPF camp. #JaiHind.”

“AKs and huge quantity of grenades recovered. I compliment the alertness of CRPF & J&K Policemen,” confirmed DGP

    A country can not be run on false religious rhetoric, but that is what Path is tan is doing. Islam is not in any danger. India does not prohibit anyone from praying. Pathi stan can not even pay loan on its debt, forget about the debt. It has sold its future generations to Chinese (they know Path's economic reality), as OBOR is a distant dream which 'may' start laying golden eggs sometime after 30 years. But, the same dream is being passed on as if it is today's reality. Youngsters are being trained to be barbarians not as terrorists, crossing boundaries of sanity, and if they are not killed today, tomorrow they will be a threat even to their loved ones. Indian army is doing them a favor by sending them back to the maker. If they were talented, they would have asked, will 72 virgin beauties will be sleeping with them underground.. the graves....and how they will fit in such a small space !
